But at peace.
Yesterday, was not unlike so many other days. Full of activity and long to-do lists.
Spent the morning with friends. Picked up kids at noon (last day of school). Celebrated with a picnic, silly string wars and ice cream at the party store.
Struggled with fear, nerves, and excitement. (Tomorrow is Redemption Sunday). Inward battle within my soul (completely unrelated to Redemption Sunday) and complete awe of my God who calmed my nerves, sent the Hornet about before me (even saw hornets all day long!), and gave me resolutions for my inward battle... resolutions that were obviously not from within my selfish, human spirit.
It was also the day I almost lost my husband.
He was shocked by an electrical current. The blister, the wounds, and the look in his eyes told me how bad it really was... how bad it could have been.
The waters I am called to walk upon threaten to overtake me... I look down at the what if's splashing around my ankles and I shudder. Just as quickly, I am reminded of my Hornet and I lift my eyes to the One who calms my quaking heart.
He is capable. He is loving. And He is good.
